Large Tree Falls on OSU Campus

CORVALLIS, Ore. — A large red oak tree fell on the Memorial Union Quad at Oregon State University Wednesday morning. First the 80-foot tree dropped a large branch on one side, and then the tree fell in the opposite direction, OSU officials said.

It’s unknown why the tree fell, but Joe Majeski, landscape manager for OSU, says it could be due to “summer branch drop”. No one was injured and crews are cleaning up the debris now.
